 A brief biography:

 I have been teaching English as a New Language, ENL, formerly known as English as a Second Language, ESL, since 2004 at de Hostos. It is our goal to teach basic and academic English to students newly arriving to our country, in addition to those students whose language acquisition levels continue to evolve and expand.

Through speaking,listening, reading and writing activities, students are immersed in an all-English environment. This ensures rapid language fluency and promotes greater academic achievement. 

In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I also coordinate the MicroSociety program; Mini-Micro for preK-K students, and Micro City for grade 1-6. Through the MicroSociety program, our school offers students various opportunities to explore real-world learning. Students learn about running businesses, banking, law and government, to name just a few of the many possibilities. 

Wishing all a wonderful and successful year!
